‘We vomit on all these people who suddenly say they are our friends’, says #CharlieHebdo cartoonist as he scoffs at surge in support after attack

One of the surviving Charlie Hebdo cartoonists has scoffed at the surge in support for the satirical magazine after the attack, which killed eight of his colleagues and four other victims.

Bernard Holtrop, who was not in the office during the massacre on Wednesday, admitted the publication’s new found fame was ‘laughable’ and comes from people who have ‘never seen it’.

The Dutch-born artist reportedly said the provocative weekly had unexpected ‘new friends’ including the Pope, Queen Elizabeth and Vladimir Putin.

    I’m extremely glad not to uphold any speck of solidarity towards a bunch of leftists who suffer constant bouts of amnesia about their past. That counts for these born-again protestors as much as it does for Charlie Hebdo.

    These people who are out in droves were hissing and booing at Zemmour & Houellebecq (who are quite on the left, ironically) on the airwaves the very day before all those attacks started.

    Again, the writing was on the wall a long time ago:


    The smug, retarded french preferred to conveniently give Israel the middle finger. Indeed, they chose to bathe in a sea of chimping mudslimes for ‘palestine’ last summer instead.

    They deserve everything that’s coming for them; they deserve their pampered muslims, their minarets, their no-go zones, their riots, and their jihad attacks.

    That’s what you get for voting for a Palestinian state last month.

    And of course we have the CBC this morning worried about a backlash against muslims in Europe and Canada. Scenes of muslims worried in their Canadian mosques along with interviews. And most horrific an interview with a muslim woman who states she can see a difference in people’s eyes when they look at her. I will be eagerly waiting for CBC’s coverage of rampaging Mennonites in their horse and buggys. And of course we have today’s nothing to do with islam edition of the Sunday Toronto Star, which has a couple of university researchers explaining that terrorism is simply a matter of unemployment, lack of social programs, blah, blah.

      “she can see a difference in people’s eyes when they look at her”

      What does she expect, congratulations?

    • Oh I gotta look for that one.

  • Yes, I had seen this item. Really sick guy. Leftists are hate-filled.

    • I think he has a point Avi. A lot of the Je Suis Charlie support is essentially facebook click support, in other words its trendy and meaningless.

      • Oh. Maybe I misunderstood? Could be. I thought he rejects sympathy from people who do not agree with the ideas of the victims.

        • On second reading I suspect that is his main point, you’re right he is a bitter leftist!

            Facebook has a new tool for muslim viewers. You can click, like, unlike, or I will kill you.

    Forget islam, terrorism, and other threats. The Sunday Toronto Star explains the biggest threat to our democracies. Yes, you guessed it, that evil Harper. The Star has dragged out another of its old commies in the editorial section. Bob Hepburn says Harper is destroying democracy in Canada in a long rant, blah, blah, blah.

      When did Harper have Hepburn flogged and beheaded? Missed that. – Denyse O’Leary, Ottawa

      Right, Trudeau is a real supporter of democracy,that’s why he says all Liberal party candidates must be pro abortion, regardless of their true feelings about it. Harper lets people believe what they choose. He’s so evil in comparison.

    Very few of those who claim to be champions of free speech showed support for the Jyllands-Posten, who is now refusing to publish the Charlie Hebdo.

    Shallow – It’s the new profound!

  • Norman_In_New_York

    What this guy is saying is that he has no use for fair weather friends and doubts that their goodwill will last long.

  • CMH

    Talk about bravery and hitting the nail on the head.

  • First of all, it’s rude to insult people who are genuinely shocked by these events.

    Having said that, yes, there are people who just want to be a part of a happening and will doubtless never identify the true enemy of Western civilisation or do anything about it.

      That and the Slacktavists are always up for the appropriation of pretty much anything if it helps them to feel better about themselves.
